I found a photo on the internet of a pattern on a wrought-iron gate.
And came up with this grid-based deconstruction for your enjoyment.
Please feed-back to me? Is there another pattern like this anywhere???
I am also undecided about how to spell the name for this new pattern – HELP!! I’m thinking “Gaït” but tell me what you think.
I’ve been drawing it quite a bit lately, so here it is deconstructed.
Not that anyone would have trouble drawing it without the step-out but, well, you can never be too sure 🙂
Oh and if you want to see it in action, have a look here and here.
As you can see, MO works really well as an alternative for a string. You can draw the pattern once, or several times side by side – then you can go to town with embellishments and variations, adding tangles and dangles around it.
I feel it is a pretty versatile pattern and has the potential to be played with ad infinitum.
All in all, I’m quite pleased with myself, really.
I’ve come up with a new pattern!!!
Well at least I think it’s new.
And it’s my first 🙂
I think its name ought to be “Mo” – seeing as it was developed it towards the end of November, which these days is becoming otherwise known as “Movember”, at least in the UK. Many guys I know (except for my own!) take part in this noble fund raising event each year, and i figured this was a fitting way for me to join in this time round. Because, trust me on this, a lady is better off NOT growing her own ‘tash, even in the name of charity!!

Anyway, about this pattern (did I mention it was MY FIRST).
Well – it kinda loosely reminded me of a ‘tash and came about after I noticed a pattern I quite liked on one of Mr Wibbs’s shirts. I tried to draw it and hey presto, “Mo” was born!
…hope you like it…
